George Sanders

GEORGE SANDERS (1906-1972), born in St. Petersburg, Russia

The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945)
Haven't you seen The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945)?

Watch this and then see these other four films.

House of the Seven Gables (1940) The villain of the piece to Vincent Price's hero.
The Saint Strikes Back (1939) As Simon Templar - a rare heroic role for Sanders, the first of five appearances as "The Saint".
All About Eve (1950)
A Shot in the Dark (1964) One of those whom Inspector Clouseau suspects of murder.

  • I may be George's #1 fan! I can recomend some lesser known mysteries and crime dramas...Quiet Please, Murder...The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry...Mr. Moto's Last Warning also with Peter Lorre. Want some inside gossip? He married sisters! He is the older brother to the lesser known actor Tom Conway. He died at his own hand after becoming 'bored with life', as he predicted he would do earlier on in his life.

  • Oh! I can tell it's early, how could I forget one of my favourite films ever?! Lured! An unlikely cast starring Lucille Ball of all people! Sanders is perfect in his typical good guy or bad guy? role supported by Lionel Atwill, George Zucco and Alan Mowbray.
